What are ways I could add probiotics to my diet?
If you’re ready to add probiotics to your diet, you have a lot of options. Now that more research shows these "good'" bacteria may help with digestive problems, you just need to know where to find them.
One common source is supplements. You can buy them as tablets, capsules, powders, or liquids. Look for them in health food stores, grocery stores, drugstores, and online.
You can also find probiotics in many foods. Yogurt is the most well-known source, but they're also in:
- Dairy foods like buttermilk, some soft cheeses, fermented milk, and kefir
- Soy drinks and products like miso and tempeh
- Kimchi, sauerkraut, and many pickles
